So for the last few weeks, I had the privilege and blessed opportunity to meet a wonderfully talented singer songwriter by the name of Monica Jasmine. Her personal narrative and fan following online impressed me the most so I was shocked to know she is still unsigned.
After doing my research, I found that the steps she needs to take to be the next Jennifer Lopez are not nearly as insurmountable. I don’t claim to be an expert but neither was Sean Combs, Russell Simmons, L.A. Reid, or even Jennifer Lopez herself when they first started. That encourages me. Social Media has also become a great equalizer. The following is her bio from her upcoming press kit.
A superstar on the brink of success is what many are calling her. The compelling swag along side her powerhouse voice, are just a mere fraction of what’s to come. Born Monica Jasmine Gonzalez on April 21, 1990, the Miami, FL bred recording artist and songwriter is surely on her way to the top.
Entertaining since the age of 7, it’s no wonder why it all comes so natural to her. Her vicious strut and sexy demeanor will keep your eyes glued, and your jaw dropped. Her welcoming voice and pure sassiness will keep audiences begging for more. The definition of a prodigy, and the determination of a scholar is what have kept her so relevant in this game of trials and tribulations. She has earned every inch and walked every mile, all while keeping her head held high, and a smile across her face. Way past the smile, however, lies the story of a strength, optimism and perseverance.
Growing up wasn’t the easiest, far from it actually. She was raised in a broken home never knowing her father or his whereabouts. The lack of a fatherly figure affected not only her music, but also her approach on life. Her mother did her very best to raise a young, beautiful, and talented singer, but also had her own demons to deal with. Alcoholism played a major role in the upbringing of this future superstar, a disease which not only affects the addicted, but those around them; in this case, Monica.
For these same reasons music became an escape from her everyday problems and struggles. She would spend countless hours venting by jotting down every feeling, thought and idea on a notepad. At the age of 16, she would begin recording and networking with several local artist, producers, and songwriters. After countless offers from independent labels, managers, and agents, she would soon realize that this could be her way out of the struggles she faced growing up.
Pursuing her dreams, she began dedicating more and more time in her passion for music. Setting aside her friends for microphones, she began to develop into the star she is today. She has worked with several local and major artist and producers, including, Trick Daddy, Qwote, 2explicit, OB1, Steven ‘Q-Beatz’ Kubie, and DJ Cyclone , Pretty Ricky Video Shoot “Pac Man your body” as well as, recorded in a vast variety of studios, such as Circle House, Magic Sounds, House Of Fiya Entertainment, CT Studios, and Studio Center, just to name a few.
She is currently working on her debut album and writing for major placements. Failure is no option, and obstacles stand no chance against this 23 year-old EDM, R&B and Pop phenomenon.
